“Those who believe in God...........must visit”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

It's a historical temple with which lots of events are attached. Many Yogis have described it as a special place for worship. Those having faith in almighty and religious places must visit.

It has improved a lot since my fist visit in 1983. Money is being spent on infra development in and around temple complex yet a lot is still required to be done. Model of Vaishno Devi shrine can be an example to what extent facilities for devotees can be developed out of offerings of devotees only.

“Beautiful temple--not to be missed!”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

Try to get there in the early evening. This is a fascinating place and it is best visited with a local guide. I've been to many temples in India and this one is a stand out.
